Crystal Palace fans on Twitter have been busy discussing Scott Dann’s performance against Huddersfield, with the majority under the impression that the centre-back is not what he used to be – some have even suggested that he is finished at this level.
Former Wigan & Fulham man, Jimmy Bullard recently showed that he’s still got it! Check out the video below…
The 6 foot 2 defender himself had only just returned to full fitness towards the end of 2018 after suffering a serious injury of his own, and his time on the sidelines seems to have affected his game slightly.
The 32-year-old looks to have lost a yard of pace, and as a result, appears to be a weak link in the Eagles’ backline.
His passing also used to be one of his best features, but even that looked wayward against the Terriers, leading many Palace supporters on Twitter to criticise the Englishman…
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Dann, but today sort of felt like the beginning of the end.

Few thoughts from today – negatives first:
– Dann is done at Prem level, sadly.
– Luka gets away with murder because he scores a few penalties. He isn’t capable of dictating play.
– Someone needs to explain the offside rule to Michy.#cpfc

Scott Dann runs like he's got 20kg weights on his feet. Painfully slow and very poor today.

2-0 win but that was the 2nd worst defensive performance of the season after Brighton away. Dann isn’t cut out for the prem anymore.

My pet Tortiose is quicker than Scott Dann and it pains me to say that because he was an excellent defender,but I fear his knee injury has done him for pace.

Scott Dann looked well past it. Luka is nowhere near the player he has been, and Townsend was pretty horrific.

Scott Dann is finished at this level isn’t he?

Big win, poor performance v a poor side. Dann was awful.
